the bombings. president obama marked the moment of silence from the white house. the u.s. senate held a similar tribute on capitol hill. it is still unclear what impact the boston bombings will have on the immigration debate in congress. but the topic of national security is clearly playing a more prominent role in the discussion. things got tense on capitol hill yesterday when senator chuck schumer sparred republican senator chuck grassley about the future of the legislation. take a look. >> a few ways to improve the bill all for an amendment when we start mark-up in may and let's vote on it. i say that particularly those who were pointing to what happened. the terrible tragedy in boston as a -- i would say an excuse for not doing a bill or delaying it many months oer years. >> i never said that. >> i didn't say you did, sir. >> i didn't say -- >> i didn't say you did. i don't mean you, mr. grassley. >> mr. chairman, i don't appreciate the senator demeaning the witnesses that have come here. >> earlier, senator patrick leahy who chairs the judiciary committee opened the hearing with some tough

to president obama's budget and take a look at this statistic. 86% of tax increases will fall on people making $200,000 a year or more in 2015. this according to the new study by the tax policy center. what to make of this? joining us is the senior political analyst for the washington examiner. michael, good to see you. i'm more interested in the fact that earners nearly every income level will bear some sort of tax increase in this which flies in the face behalf president obama promised years ago. >> when president obama was running for his first term, he said he wasn't going to raise taxes on ordinary people. that's actually been violated in a number of ways, including in the obama care law and early increase in the cigarette tax that tends to hit down scale people more often than it hits upscale people. but in the second term, he's putting in his budget these proposals to change, as i understand it, the c.p.i. that means that your bracket increases will go into effect earlier. people will be thrust into higher tax brackets and so-called buffett tax which amounts to a sort of revival of the
far and people's reaction in terms of -- duval patrick has been very clear and barack obama has been very clear about we're not going to say all boxers might go on to become -- right? that there is a distinction here between what these two people are alleged to have done and the fate they have. but i think the point there when you say they start out as normal people gives me this kind of almost awful feeling like you never know who is around the corner. what you're saying is it is more a psychological story than a sociological one. right? there is something happening internal and that framework which is a framework we use when we apply it to all kinds of other events that happen might also be applicable here. >> we haven't used it with regards to acts of terror committed by someone who professes to be muslim. i think that's the important part of this. whether it's a convert, whether we talk about this spectrum of radicalization, being a muslim doesn't make you more likely to commit an act of terror. that is simply false. as we look at these indications we have to be careful about the

obama. massachusetts governor and the boston mayor as well as yoyo ma, and mitt romney, long time boston resident will be in attendance. meantime, all around downtown, memorials are cropping up, makeshift memorials. there are flowers everywhere, jerseys hanging along the police barricades and a sign on one of the buildings that says boston doesn't blink. training for 2014 begins now. all of this comes this day of remembrance after a day of breakthroughs yesterday. and the breakthroughs include images, so many images available. this is one of them that was obtained by our nbc affiliate whdh that shows what appears to be a bag at the site of one of the blasts. that could be the bomb. there is also video that has not been released yet, an image of a man believed to be around six feet tall in a white or off white baseball cap that is certainly some of these authorities want to talk to. this video shows this individual putting a bag down near the scene of the second blast. some of the best pictures come from the surveillance camera on the front of the lord and taylor store, which is directly
to question in relation to the boston marathon bombings. all this as president obama went to that city today to help begin the healing. scott cohn has the latest from that city. scott? >> michelle, we are, indeed, about two hours away from this long-awaited news conference. we've had an official news blackout for two days now. so we should find out what the authorities have been working on the last couple of days. some actual official information about that. potentially, a picture or pictures of the people they want to talk to and what they've learned from all of those video images. and we know that there were cell phone cameras that people have turned in and all the surveillance cameras, like the one in the lord and taylor store, just across the street from the second blast. and also, at least two others that were operated by the boston athletic association at the finish line, and those could be very high-quality images, because those were high-definition cameras. so if they caught something, that could be crucial. also, there are the fragments that they've picked up of the explosive device
, possibly that is still being tested, to president obama and to u.s. senator roger wicker. what had happened, at its off site mailing screening centers, authorities intercepted these letters. there were preliminary results saying they had tested positive for ricin. now authorities are looking whether or not they actually have. these tests usually take for final confirmation anywhere between 24 and 48 hours. so they're waiting on results of that. these are two letters the fbi says came from tennessee. so they continued their investigation there. meanwhile on capitol hill today, in a number of senate office buildings there were reports of suspicious packages, suspicious envelopes, suspicious packages being sent to state offices, local offices of u.s. senators. much of that has been cleared already. this is heightened sense of really, sensitivity here in washington, d.c. to watch out for all of these kind of things. u.s. capitol police and authorities are asking staff and lawmakers to be ever vigilant here. so far this seems to be the by-product of that. what we're really looking at now, those

. there are many unanswered questions still going on in this investigation. president obama addressed the topic of unanswered questions last night when he talked to the country after the capture of the second suspected bombing suspect. this is what the president had to say. [video clip] >> obviously tonight there are still many unanswered questions. among them, why did young man who grew up and study here as part of our communities and country resort to such violence? how did they plan and carry out these attacks and did they receive any help? the families of those killed so senselessly deserve answers. the wounded, some of who have to learn how the sand, and walk, and again, deserve answers. we will continue to deploy all the necessary resources to support the investigation, to collect intelligence, and to protect our citizens. we will determine what happened, we will investigate any associations these terrorists may have had, and we will continue to do whatever we had to do to keep our people safe. host: that was the president last night making the announcement that in fact the second suspect

to speak is governor deval patrick as well as president obama who will speak at the end of the service and will bring those remarks to you live. as you know in any sort of in terms of healing it, the key is willing a will to heal. that is very much apparent here in boston. now onto the investigation, as carl said two individuals being sought by authorities on camera, videos can be waptured of these individuals around the time of the bombing, but authorities are also saying that the pictures of those individuals have not been released. so pictures are not the men that authorities are looking for. but there were multiple images that captured the explosion and the time leading up to it. that's what authorities are looking at frame by frame by frame. not just cell phone video, but surveillance video. we talked about the lord & taylor camera directly across the street from the second bombing. there were two other cameras at least that were supplied by a company called access communications. those cameras were high definition cameras. so these could be very high quality images, and we expect
